This chapter presents a case study on the role of the European Union (EU) in the conflict resolution of Northern Ireland. It describes the incremental nature of establishing a role for European integration in the conflict resolution process through policy tools, resources and political opportunities and analyses the role of EU institutions in inducing change in the domestic political opportunity structure conducive to intercommunal reconciliation. The analysis reveals that European integration has produced significant long-term transformative effects by enhancing communication, societal interaction and interest disaggregation.
